    Great Plugin. Exactly what I was looking for. Is there a simple way to display the most recent Press, News, and Events on a page? Thanks for your help.

    The plugin generates an archive page for each post type, jut like regular posts. They are at:

    /press-releases/
    /events/
    /news/

    on your site.

    Ah. What you describe is beyond the scope of this plugin. (But not that far!)

    The plugin creates three Custom Post Types that can be queried like any other using the WP_Query method. That does take a bit of coding, but maybe there are other plugins that can encapsulate it.

    I'll take note for future development to make a shortcode or similar.

    Thanks Matt,
    I found a plugin called "Latest Custom Post Type Updates" that does the trick.

    I'm trying to figure out why the /events page isn't displaying. the /press-releases/ and /news/ work perfectly, but my events page page gives me a "Not Found".

    Here's a link to an events page:
    http://bumi.emblazedesign.com/events/four-founders-four-ways-to-a-million/

    Any ideas why the events index page won't display?

    Thanks,
    Bryan

    That is interesting. Try visiting the Permalink Settings page (you only need to visit), and try the events archive again. This reloads some of the internals of WordPress urls.

    Is there a way to add a featured image to the default pages it creates?

    IE:
    /press-releases/
    /events/
    /news/

    Love the plugin by the way!

    I think that is beyond the scope of this plugin.

    You can either modify your templates directly, or find another plugin that addresses it. Maybe check out this one.
